Local Talent: Motherland – Where I Belong

What better way to shake off the dank weather of winter than a classic rock anthem? With an opener that has all of the grand pomp of the offspring of Won’t Get Fooled Again, Motherland’s first single of 2019 starts with bold intent.

The rest of the track from this North East five piece lives up to this initial promise with a thrusting punchy alt-rock tune and strong angsty vocals, giving a banging near five minutes to thrash off winter. The hard hitting lyrics about struggling to keep things together hit the spot “I’ll save a breath and hope you breathe it”. This is Motherland’s strongest track to date and follows their debut single Blinded By You last summer.

Catch Motherland at Stockton Calling on 20th April where they will literally be kicking things off at the ARC 2 stage. They also play at Westgarth Social Club on 29 March and at Newcastle’s Bar Loco on April 4th.
